It is very peaceful in this neck of the woods. So quiet that I didn’t see another human being for three whole days. Then I went for a walk across the fields to Wickham St. Paul and back the longer way round. It wasn’t an epic walk, by any standards, but a really tranquil one, with only two cars and three pedestrians passing me the whole time. On the way back I saw four roe deer. I also sat in the middle of the fields with the sun beating down on me for a while. Just the tonic!
I returned a while later to record the wind blowing the crops around and sat for even longer, listening, and watching the beetles go about their business.
